Successful earring recovery on the beach! Tatiana found my listing and called on the evening of May 5, 2021 for a little help.
It’s special to her and fortunately she and her husband made great notes about where they were and what happened when it was lost. They were able to point me in the right direction in the dry sand near their sitting area.
I was so happy to see it in my scoop and now back where it belongs for more adventures. Cheers to a lovely couple!🥂
Received a desperate phone call from Maria that she lost her precious late grandmother’s engagement ring in the waters of an Ontario Park near Thunder Bay, Ontario.
I could hear the desperation in her voice but the thought of travelling 15 hours one-way was daunting.
I reached out to another ‘Ring Finder’ Ann who is listed in Peterborough, ON. Ann normally drives down to the Garrett Memorial metal detecting hunt in Texas and we’ve drove to a hunt last year in Chazy, New York. Ann is like me… we love to drive!
We set out on this incredible long distance journey, while swapping driving duties when our eyes started to cross while the other rested.
We arrived around 7 AM in the morning with thunder and lightning happening. We closed our eyes for a half hour rest and soon after the thunder stopped and the rain let up. We decided to “GO FOR IT” after all we were getting wet in the water anyways!
Prior to the trip I had Maria and her husband Thomas “Google Earth” the location and mark it up with an “X”. Originally I requested them to GPS the location but after more communications with Maria there was no cell reception there!
I grid searched and within 40 minutes I came across a double tone on my equinox 800 7/8 and 11/12 readings! Second scoop and there was Maria’s beautiful heirloom engagement ring in my sand scoop!!
We decided to leave immediately and hit the “Flying J“ for breakfast and conjured up a plan to surprise Maria! Check out the video of the phone call to her… PRICELESS!!!!
On the trip home it was pouring rain from the location until Orillia where I dropped Ann off at her vehicle at my good Friends Alan and Dale’s home. We both messaged at 4:00am that we were home safe!
Next day, I had 2 schedule recoveries to be completed. One the farmer found his keys and the other I decided to push back in order to meet up with Maria and Thomas! Maria was so thankful that we took on this crazy challenge of a drive and she was so very grateful we found her precious late Grand Mother’s engagement ring which is now a Family Heirloom!!
We would like to thank Ontario Parks for permission to allow us to metal detect to find Maria’s ring!!
Thank you Maria and Thomas for the generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!!
I am honoured to be finishing off 2018 with 13 successful clients and look forward to many recoveries and returns for 2019! I have met some really amazing people and raised over $1,300 going to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation for my #PayItForward campaign using my metal/scuba dive detecting hobby raising donations which is all my reward monies going to this wonderful charity!
I have completed a compilations of most of my successes in this YouTube video
I had a few unsuccessful attempts but will be heading back to those locations this summer to continue searching. I will continue to search for some of the owners of the other rings I have found during searches using social media. THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT “THE RING FINDERS DOT COM” !!!
I wish all “The Ring Finders” dedicated MEMBERS/TEAM MEMBERS a very successful 2019!! Stay safe and keep the S*M*I*L*E*S coming!!
Received a phone call from a young man from Malton, Ontario. He was playing volleyball on the weekend with his Friends at the beach volleyball area at Professors Lake Brampton, Ontario when he noticed both his gold plated cross as well las his 14k gold eagle pendant was missing because his large chain was broken. He was heartbroken more the the eagle pendant was missing as is it was a gift from his Aunt.
After obtaining permission from City of Brampton staff to metal detect for the young mans jewellery, I met him there in the early evening. (Lucky I work for COB!!)
I started without him as the skies were getting dark and was worried we would have to leave due to the storm approaching and our personal safety. I started grinding the west beach court….then the east. Within 20 minutes after the young man showed up and advised he was in the south court….we found he precious 14k gold eagle pendant. No luck in finding his small gold plated cross but he didn’t mind.
He was gracious enough to make a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation Snow Run 2018 Charity via my link!!
